SCOTUS Update: Trump Public Charge Policy Remains Blocked

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) denied a request from Republican state attorneys general seeking to restore the Trump “public charge” regulations that effectively denied millions of immigrants and their families health care and economic support during the COVID-19 pandemic. The attorneys general of Texas and 13 other states filed this motion. As a result of the motion being denied, the Biden administration’s March 2021 reversal of the Trump policy remains in effect.
